Lady Gaga joined thousands of people at Los Angeles' City Hall Monday evening and gave an emotional speech in the wake of the tragic Orlando massacre, which occurred Sunday at the gay nightclub Pulse.

Gaga, a long time supporter of the LGBT community, stood along others in solidarity and gave an emotional speech about the 49 victims lost in the country's deadliest mass shooting in history.

"We mourn the tragic loss of these innocent, beautiful people. Let's all today pledge an allegiance of love to them and to their families who are suffering so deeply," the "Bad Romance" singer said, "They are sons and daughters. They were fathers and mothers. They are all our brothers and our sisters.

"But, tonight I will not allow my anger and outrage over this attack to overshadow our need to honor those who are grieving truly for their lost ones; lost members of the LGBT community," Gaga added.

The "American Horror Story" actress held back tears as she spoke to the crowd.

"I hope you know that myself and so many are your allies. Not only me, but everyone here," she said. We represent the compassion and the loyalty of millions of people around the world that believe in you. You are not alone, you are not alone."

Tomorrow I hope that we all race thoughtfully and loudly towards solutions. But tonight, and right now, Orlando, we are united with you. And we are here to remember," Gaga finished.

The pop star then read the names of the 49 victims. Her pal Anderson Cooper did the same on CNN.

Gaga also took to social media to pay tribute to the men and women who were killed Sunday.
